A 34 year old Brooklyn, NY man has declined a plea deal for a charge of felony ab0rtion that is being brought upon him. Shervaughn Remy did the unthinkable and purposely caused his girlfriend to lose their baby.
Remy’s girlfriend was 14 week pregnant and was ready to give life to a baby. Then last year on Valentine’s Day when Remy and his girlfriend had interc0urse he slipped two ab0rtion pills inside of her. Later that night she went to the emergency room with abdominal pain. The doctor found the two pills during her examination. He also found that her baby had passed. She ended up having to deliver the 14 week stillborn fetus.
Remy claims that he is innocent and turned down the plea deal that he was offered because he does not feel that he is guilty of anything. His defense lawyers made sure to point out that the victim did not want to press charges.
The ab0rtion pill that had been slipped inside of Remy’s girlfriend is called Cytotec. The way that this pill works is that it causes contractions of the uterus. This ends up causing the body to expel the fetus. It is mainly used to help prevent gastric ulcers and other stomach problems but comes with a letter of warning that it is never to be used by pregnant women due to the fact that it can be used as an ab0rtion pill as well. In Mexico this pill is readily available but is sold for at least $100 per pill.
If Remy is convicted of felony ab0rtion he could face a sentence of 15 to 25 years in prison as ab0rtion is considered a Class E felony and this incident is considered ab0rtion in the second degree.
